It is interesting to me that already there are 3 approaches:
* uniform access-oriented formats
* some-and-some based on the wishes of tapers
* only taper-oriented formats

The access formats are more accessible both because they are smaller and streamable, but because they are more widely supported without plug-ins or downloads.

Therefore at one year the "some and some" compromise approach could stay where it is, or go full access, or go full trade-oriented based on how the technology and culture shifts.

An experimental some-and-some period seems to be as close to middle of the road we have.
